    Pros

    Large company with a small company feel. Company has tremendous growth potential given the recent collapse of some very large competitors. No capital at risk, so little chance of a blow up.

    Cons

    Some projects take a long time to get implemented or do not meet the client specs when they finally are. Technology good but not leading edge.

    Advice to Management

    Make it clear to the employees what they are expected to do to grow the business and how they get paid if they succeed.

    I worked at Investment Technology Group full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    ITG is a fast moving financial services company. Its a great place if you are intern, seasoned developer or veteran architect - there are enough interesting challenges on all technical levels. Great people, nice atmosphere, good salaries, perks and bonuses are part of the deal. Overall I had a great time at ITG and would highly recommend this place.

    Cons

    May become a "golden cage" after some time, limiting your career progress.

    Good place to have on your resume A few good product offerings Access to some big accounts that allow you good connections

    Pay! Not a lot of upward movement in sales, management is young If youre not in the circle of trust, youre basically screwed

    Stop doing re-alignments for the sake of change Trust more in your sales people, promote competent people and not just the insiders

    Pros

    -Great work/life balance. Very regular hours, overtime hardly required -Very collegiate atmosphere, people open to help you out anytime -International opportunities available for some positions -Senior management easily approachable, and open to new ideas and projects, even from summer interns

    Cons

    -Apart from some front-office teams, work is not very challenging and can get stale -Compensation is decent, but managing in NY on it is not easy, especially when compared to similar positions in other firms

    Advice to Management

    Dont think i have any complaints about the management. Management is aware of the firm's happenings and people, and have a good idea about the firm's future.
